Bothers me to hear people just bury Sacramento so freely.   Feel really bad for a great but long suffering fan base.

Honestly I won't feel that bad for them if the team does move to Seattle.  The city of Sacramento probably isn't big enough or strong enough economically to really support a professional basketball team like the Kings.  In Seattle they can have a better arena and stronger support.  On top of that, Seattle is close enough to northern CA that Kings fans can still support the team even if it's gone to Seattle.

Seattle fans are just as deserving of a team.  Theirs was stolen from them even though they supported it for many many years.  It would be a rough transition, but I think it'd be a good thing if the old Supersonics fans the current Kings fans came together to support the new Seattle [insert name here]s.

I would love to see an NBA team back in Seattle. Would be very strange to see them leave Sacramento though. I hope if they do move back to Seattle they go back to the Supersonics. Would be a classic move.

Same here. We're so fortunate to be fans of a stable franchise, and the greatest one in history, at that.

If I had my druthers, there'd be some serious restructuring of the NBA landscape—Sacramento would keep the Kings, Seattle would get the Sonics back, and there'd be no teams in Charlotte, Toronto, or Orlando. I might even scrap one of the three Texas teams, and Memphis.

Sacramento can support a team for sure.  They have.  Really, if I have any way I don't feel bad, it's that the management and ownsership sucks and they just make so many bad choices.  Hard to defend that.  WHy does Pietre still have that job?  Sacramento has a great fan base though.

I feel bad for Seattle as well and would love the SOnics back, but to get them back by taking the Kings... I'd feel dirty as a Seattle fan.  But oh well.

Part of it that is hard is that you can go back through history and see so many teams "stolen" from another city.

I know. I was playing along. But you know what people of Rochester got shafted the most. There wouldn't be Kings franchise if it weren't for them.

The deal will sell the Kings for approximately $500 million, with the Seattle group seeking relocation to Key Arena for the 2013-'14 season.
